i Google for images/videos i need in my hubs. Is it a violation of terms to use Google images/videos? If its a violation what to do? Where i get legal photo? Or how do i understand which Google photo or video is legal? Sorry for the stupid question but I am still learning.
Take a look at this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/42205?page=2#post983740
I take my videos from YouTube - as far as I know, if they're embedable, then it's okay to use them.
Also with most images if you credit the source that could help, but always check for each place if possible, because they could be heavily copyrighted.
But I always credit some of the photos in mine with the url of the place I take it from, but I've got a feeling that original photos are far better and am at some point going to go through all of my hubpages and replace them with original images that I have took, far better and far more original!
Marisa Wright wrote a hub on obtaining photos correctly and legally for use on HP.

This morning I stumbled over more than a couple of "Editor's Choice" Hubs which are blatantly using images they do not appear to have the rights to use. Since HP is pushing Editor's Choice as the very best of...
